Death Brings Chaos

The answers lie within us, waiting calmly

We are overshadowed by something larger

Something bigger than ourselves

Menacing, sneering

It threatens to take over, to control our thoughts, our actions

We are but puppets

I do not have to accept it

I can look away, pretend

I am good at that, I have practice

I sit and stare up at the stars

The sky is so beautiful at night

I sip a glass of red wine

I wonder what she would have thought

If she could see us now

How did we get here?

So far from where we began

We have replaced smiles with silence

Replaced love with avoidance

Destroyed the family portraits

Hung misery in their place

I miss you
